The art and design programme at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton. Art for Life is passionate about creating the best possible patient environment.
Our small part time team is managed by an Arts Committee consisting of patient and staff representatives, arts experts and enthusiasts, which meets quarterly to support and guide the team.
Art for Life helps shape high quality interior and exterior spaces within the hospital. Each year we run music performances, exhibitions and offer a broad range of opportunities for patients and staff to get involved in creative activities that encourages patient wellbeing. We believe we have developed Somerset's largest accessible contemporary art collection. Over 400 artworks are seen every day, some art has been bought but much of it is loaned to us.
